The new battle-cry to save a disappearing Republic should begin with the words: “Set our children free”. While the President Barack Obama-led Socialist regime in Washington calls the tune by keeping the bouncing ball over the concept of Government-Fighting-Patriots, the real battle is the one where it gets to take over your children. With all eyes trained expectantly on the latest Obama executive order; with the definition of one man, one woman marriage being rewritten by the Supreme Court, progressives in office have been working out the details to come up with a way to capture your children.
Comments: I think parents need to call their local schools and find out if this is being adopted.
I keep hearing home schooling recommended but how realistic is the advice? How many families need a working mother and a working father to pay the bills? I was a working mother myself. I was once told that I should be at home for the good of my chioldren. I replied, the first thing I must do for my children is shelter, feed and clothe them. In those days about half of the mothers were at home. How I longed to be one of them. In the end, the money I earned put everyone on their feet, including me.
Many of the women who are "homemakers" today are on welfare and lack the ability to utilize the time they have to home school.
As a math teacher, I´ve dug into the math part of the Common Core standards and I can tell you that they are a big improvement over the current California standards.
There may be reasons to have concern about a one-size-fits every state set of standards and the precedent they set. But the actual standards themselves, at least in math, may be an improvement over what your state had.
If you´re concerned, many private schools do not follow state standards.
#3 it´s all about priorities! I´m a homemaker who was a paediatric nurse before staying home to raise my EIGHT children. Hubby is the breadwinner and he works a main job and teaches college classes online part time so I can be at home.
Our children (20 down to 21 months) are fed, sheltered and clothed. It might be thrift shop stuff and lots of ground beef but that´s not what is important to us. We aren´t on welfare, never have been and we have two children with type I diabetes. I also homeschool the younger ones and the high schoolers go to a Catholic school. We´re Americans you can always better yourself (husband went back and got his Master´s degree and Bachelors after we were married with several children). It really is about priorities.
Completely lost in the understandable uproar yesterday in excerpts from Ben Urwand’s upcoming book, The Collaboration: Hollywood’s Pact with Hitler is one of Hollywood’s dirtiest little ongoing secrets. The dark and dirty side of the Hollywood of the present day may never have come to light had it not been for Bill Donohue and the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights. Hollywood letting Nazis censor scripts, removing credits from Jews and getting movies stopped before reaching the screen was Hollywood circa 1930s. Rich Hollywood stars and producers have much to feel guilty about, and perhaps this is part of the reason
The most effective way to survive President Barack Obama is to keep right on doing what he doesn’t want you to do. In one word: Communicate. These are the days when Communication is more important than most anything else. Communicate to as many others as you can by every means possible. Communication is how Obama keeps his control over America. Patriots taking a page out of Obama’s book will one day turn the tables on the most anti-American president in history. While he takes away jobs and deliberately stokes racial unrest, Obama wants you to suffer in silence. Don’t comply.
Move over Jane Fonda, President Barack Obama has all but toppled you from that iconic anti-aircraft gun perch as as America’s top Communist Viet Nam booster. Talking to reporters as he stood beside Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang yesterday, Obama told his biggest whopper to date:...”we discussed the fact that Ho Chi Minh was actually inspired by the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the words of Thomas Jefferson.” (Fox News, July 25, 2013) (Snip) Truth is Ho Chi Minh was about as inspired by the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the words of Thomas Jefferson as Obama is.
Putting your private parts out on public display is a guarantee for overnight celebrity. Scandalous as he is, Anthony D-for-dong-Weiner counts on the celebrity of being married to Huma Abedin, a longtime close aide to Hillary Clinton, in membership of the celebrity class that now rocks the world. Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian, Barack Obama and asundry others in Extroverts-Are-Us Inc. are the darlings of today’s celebrity class. Celebrity status is so blindly admired by the masses in today’s pop culture that Obama is using celebs to make Obamacare a fait accompli.
Of course, Obama will do everything humanly possible to bail out Detroit—in one fashion, or another. There can be no question about it. After all, Detroit IS spelled: U-N-I-O-N. There are a host of municipalities standing by, holding their collective breath as they wait to see what the federal government will do about Detroit. IF the US government writes a check to Detroit, get ready. The flood gates will open and, in the twinkling of an eye, the US Treasury will be bone dry—or at least
Like the long ago Stella of movie fame, President Barack Obama seems to be losing his groove with his own dissident army of low information voters on the race riot march. Proof of Obama’s gargantuan groove dive: At Friday’s White House press conference: “Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago.” Obama-style one upmanship after saying: “If I had a son he would look like Trayvon”. This should have been all that Rev. Al Sharpton needed to take millions of protesters to the streets in the beginning of what originally looked like an America
The latest liberal idiocy involves white college kids apologizing for their “white privilege” by declaring “I am not Trayvon Martin”. Of course they’re more likely to get assaulted going through a black neighborhood, than the Trayvon Martins are going through a white neighborhood, but facts like that stopped mattering years ago. So let me take my own shot at it. I am not Trayvon Martin. Not just because if confronted by a local Latino homeowner, I’m not likely to pick up a fight with him and beat him until he shoots me.
“We have just learned that Larry Grathwohl was found dead in his Cincinnati apartment,” colleague Doug Hagmann wrote in an email to Canada Free Press (CFP) this evening. “Many of us are in shock tonight,” Tina Trent wrote in her blog. The lifelong courage of Larry Grathwohl brought him legions of fans, many of whom will be heartbroken upon hearing this news. It was Grathwohl who awakened America to the inherent dangers of Barack Obama in the run up to the 2008 presidential election when he described a meeting he attended where Bill Ayers and Weather Underground
US Attorney General Eric Holder has geared up and is apparently in full combat mode for a righteous war on violence against the young. Yes, this is the same Eric Holder who was party to the shipment of guns to Mexico in the Fast and Furious scandal, which cost hundreds of Mexicans and Americans their lives. And this is the same scoundrel who is still in contempt of Congress for failing to turn over documents related to that awful debacle. THAT Eric Holder has now audaciously appointed himself the great protector of the young and innocent, as reported:
It should go without saying that love and pride of country should be the first qualifications for anyone seeking the presidency of America. President Barack Hussein Obama came into the power of the White House as an activist—pushed by activists. Foreboding for the future of America, Obama will always be an activist . He doesn’t know what else to be because he’s always been an activist. Even as an Illinois senator, he merely wore the title without doing any of the heavy lifting.In the day-to-day running America, Obama leans on the tools of activism and has been doing
A lie is a lie in any language. A lie is a lie in any country. And on today’s political front there is no bigger liar than President Barack Hussein Obama. Obama, who reiterated only yesterday that the U.S. is not aligned with and is not supporting any particular political party or group while condemning the ongoing violence across Egypt, is lying and his condemnation of the violence merely the far away mewlings of a paper tiger. Obama gave Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi $250-million only last March 5th. Obama also gave Morsi 200 Abrams tanks and 12 F-16s delivered in
How do you spell “OORAH” in Arabic? The outcome of what may have been the largest pro-democracy demonstrations in human history has shown President Barack Hussein Obama for what he really is: a Muslim Brotherhood-advocating failure. With Obama’s $250 million March 2013 gift still in his pocket; the 12 F-16s already delivered this year, with the promise of another eight by the end of the year, and 200 (count ‘em) Abrams tanks, Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi is under house arrest.The coup d’état that saw millions cheering on the streets in what is allegedly the
Citing a potential al Qaeda attack, the State Department on Friday issued a worldwide travel alert and warned American citizens that the terrorist group may be plotting a strike in the Middle East, North Africa or elsewhere. “Current information suggests that al Qaeda and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks both in the region and beyond, and that they may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August,” reads a portion of the alert, which lasts until the end of the month.
Executive Director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns Mark Glaze gave some ambiguous and potentially dangerous self defense advice Friday on “Hardball.” Glaze, speaking in opposition to “Stand Your Ground” laws, said in a circumstance where someone “comes at you” with an axe handle one should attempt to either “talk,” “fight with your fists,” “run away,” or “deescalate the situation,” but not shoot the attacker: MARK GLAZE: Very often somebody will come at you. They might want to have a fistfight. They might come at you with an ax handle. CHRIS MATTHEWS: Would you consider the guy with the ax handle armed or not?
American scientists claim the planet is undergoing one of the largest changes in climate in the past 65 million years. Climatologists at Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment have warned the likely rate of change over the next century will be at least 10 times quicker than any climate shift since the dinosaurs became extinct. If the trend continues at its current rapid pace, it will place significant stress on terrestrial ecosystems around the world, and many species will need to make behavioral, evolutionary or geographic adaptations to survive, they said.
[Video] Rapper Jay Z appearing on HBO´s "Real Time" with Bill Maher says that the black community wants upward economic mobility rather than a stronger police presence. In a conversation with former Congressman Barney Frank about police tactics such as stop-and-frisk, Jay Z suggests the stagnant economy and wealth inequality could cause widespread social unrest: "The real problem is there´s no middle class, right? So the gap between the have and have-nots is getting wider and wider... It´s gonna be a problem that no amount of police can solve, because once you have that sort of oppression
About 400 area retail and fast-food workers, together with colleagues nationally, participated in a strike Thursday to demand raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour. “If not $15, then something. I mean give us something. I work 36 hours a week and barely make enough to pay my rent, gas bill, light bill. It gets to the point where I barely have enough for lunch sometimes,” said Angel Richardson, 21, who works at McDonald’s. “I’m five months pregnant, what am I going to do in four months? I hope something changes.” The minimum wage is $7.25 nationally and $8.25
Government workers in the city of Seattle have been advised that the terms "citizen" and "brown bag" are potentially offensive and may no longer be used in official documents and discussions. KOMO-TV reports that the city´s Office of Civil Rights instructed city workers in a recent internal memo to avoid using the words because some may find them offensive. "Luckily, we´ve got options," Elliott Bronstein of the Office for Civil Rights wrote in the memo obtained by the station. "For ´citizens,´ how about ´residents?´"
You don´t have to be gay or even Russian to feel the wrath of the Russian government´s homophobia. You could go to jail if you are "pro-gay," whatever that means. And that´s under just one of a growing number of hate-infused bills becoming law at a time when, as it happens, Russia is preparing to host the world in the next Winter Olympics. The perverse anti-gay legislation is inflaming an atmosphere of persistent intimidation and at times deadly violence against Russian gays and lesbians. The question now is: What should the rest of the world do?
Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) suggested on Friday morning that the tea party movement is comprised of the same types of people who fought against the civil rights movement during the 1960s. Speaking with the Daily Beast, Rangel said of the movement: “It is the same group we faced in the South with those white crackers and the dogs and the police. They didn’t care about how they looked. He added that the tea party movement can be defeated similar to how the civil rights movement eradicated Jim Crow mentality: “It was just fierce indifference to human life that caused
The nation´s most active death penalty state is running out of its execution drug. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said Thursday that its remaining supply of phenobarbital expires in September and that no alternatives have been found. It wasn´t immediately clear whether two executions scheduled for next month would be delayed. The state has already executed 11 death-row inmates this year, and at least seven more have execution dates in coming months. "We will be unable to use our current supply of phenobarbital after it expires," agency spokesman Jason Clark said. "We are exploring all options at this time."
I think she’s one of the most fascinating women of our time and this world,” confessed Bob Greenblatt, the chairman of NBC, as part of his announcement that his network is making a miniseries about former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, with Diane Lane in the starring role. Words are funny things. For instance, G.K. Chesterton once remarked that that the word “good” has many uses: “For example, if a man were to shoot his grandmother at a range of 500 yards, I should call him a good shot but not necessarily a good man.” So it is,
A dart game that used President Obama´s face for target practice at a county fair in New York state is being dismantled today. Fairgoer Abigail Czapsky submitted photos of the booth at Otsego County Fair to HuffPost yesterday, which show President Obama´s face lined up alongside yellow stars in a dart game. According to Czapsky´s Facebook page, following yesterday´s HuffPost story the booth has now taken down the offensive targets. Czapsky says the Otsego County Fair Board called her to apologize about the booth and explain that it was being taken down. Not one individual on the fair board
After purchasing the Boston Globe in 1993 for a then-record $1.1 billion, the financially troubled New York Times just announced it sold the 141 year-old paper to Boston Red Sox owner John Henry for a mere $70 million. That´s a straight 93% loss. Figuring in two decades of inflation would only make it worse -- as does the fact the Times retains the Globe´s pension liabilities, estimated at over $100 million. (snip) What might have sweetened the lower offer for the Times is that Henry offered a straight cash deal, which is expected to close sometime in September or October.
